Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has died following a battle with cancer at age 23. His passing has prompted an outpouring of support from the Minecraft community and beyond, paying tribute to his memory and achievements.

On June 30, Technoblade’s father provided a final update on his YouTube channel, confirming his son’s passing. Technoblade had been open about his battle with cancer, often turning it into humorous content on his channel, demonstrating his strong mentality throughout.

“You’ve done so much for so many people, millions of people,” his father said.

Following the news, tributes flooded in from all corners of the internet, particularly within the Minecraft community, which is as large as it is close-knit.

ConnorEatsPants, a frequent collaborator of Technoblade, said “don’t wait till your friends of peers, no matter how close, are gone to tell them what you love/appreciate about them. It’s never too cringey or inappropriate.”

He also told a story of how Technoblade sent a card to his younger brother, thanking him for being a fan, after Connor told him he was his brother’s favorite YouTuber.

Karl Jacobs said, “Techno was and is such a positive light, he truly genuinely believed in me n helped me so much.”

TommyInnit called Techno a “f**king legend,” and revealed a message he had sent him on Minecraft for the SMP (the server many content creators play on).

“Tell the rest of the SMP that having abolished all governments of men, I have ascended to heaven to take on the kingdom of God. – Technoblade.”

Joining the tributes was YouTube itself, along with many other content creators who Technoblade had been friends with, or just influenced in some way.

YouTube Gaming’s official account tweeted “Technoblade was able to share his light and energy with so many around the world. We are deeply saddened by the news of his passing, and our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and the @Technopig community.”

Twitch streamer and YouTuber Mizkif said that Technoblade’s attitude about content creation was something he “aspired” to.

“Even with cancer, he just tried to make others smile and laugh,” he said.

Fellow streamer Ludwig Ahgren said “I’ve been rewatching Technoblade for the past hour. He was so witty and so humble even in the toughest of times.

“I’ll always look up to him.”
